Ultimate Painting’s Debut Single Is Your End of Summer Jam

We’re pretty sure we just found the only good thing about summer ending: a new single to soundtrack your final sunsets. Indie rock duo Ultimate Painting are putting out their self-titled debut on October 28 via Trouble In Mind, and lead single “Winter In Your Heart” is what we need right now.

If their voices sound familiar, that’s because Ultimate Painting is Jack Cooper from Mazes and James Hoare from Veronica Falls. The self-titled debut was recorded on tape in Hoare’s flat over the course of a few months, aiming to capture the beautiful simplicity of Ray Davies, early-70s New …

Mega Bog

Stream Mega Bog’s New Single “Cologne In The Night”

We were first introduced to Mega Bog with their brazen track “Year of Patience” after they announced their debut album, Gone Bananawould be out September 23 via Couple Skate. Now the lo-fi jazz rock group are ready to share a little more off the release, this time sharing “Cologne In The Night.”

A slow number that plays up the evening’s sultriness, “Cologne In The Night” sees Mega Bog seizing bathroom acoustics for a saxophone strut reminiscent of the ’80s. Frontwoman Erin Birgy sings with a pained tone that strikes with heartbroken familiarity, too. It’s dark, spacious, …

Gerard Way Shares “No Shows” Music Video

You may want to make some room to dance…

A day after premiering his latest solo single with BBC Radio, former My Chemical Romance frontman Gerard Way has given fans the gift of a brand new music video.

“No Shows” reintroduces Gerard Way to the world with a throwback inspired sound and just enough pop influence to make it clear the Danger Days are far behind him. The video also feels inspired by the past, with VHS quality footage showcasing the band performing on a televised dance show. It’s like something out of the 1980s, and I mean that …

Kanye West and Paul McCartney Are Recording a Song Called “Piss on My Grave”

It won’t be long until Kanye West shares his next full-length and, as such, the details keep rolling out. According to Page Six, it looks like Paul McCartney may have a hand in the new music.

The two have supposedly recorded a number of new tracks together which “could develop into an album,” one of which is called “Piss on My Grave.” It seems too ridiculous to be a true, but a clip of the song has surfaced online, making it seem a little more likely. Listen to that preview after the jump.

Then again, McCartney has expressed his …

Transit Announce ‘Joyride,’ Reveal October Tour With Such Gold And Driver Friendly

Boston rock outfit Transit have announced plans to release their newest full-length, Joyride, on October 21 through Rise Records. No single was released alongside the announcement, but the band did reveal plans for a short headlining tour, as well as a new song snippet.

Starting with the tour, Transit will be headlining a two-week run with support from New York punk rockers Such Gold and Texas heartthrobs Driver Friendly. It’s essentially the perfect tour for anyone who reads UTG, and it’s hitting many cities between Boston and Michigan in late October. The full list of dates are as …

Caribou Our Love

Stream Caribou’s Excellent New Single “Our Love”

The fact that Caribou will be dropping Our Love in two months is a little more than exciting. The album, which drops October 6 via City Slang, is the Canadian electronic musician’s first full-length in four years, following up 2010′s excellent Swim. This summer has been nothing but nonstop plays of the lead single “Can’t Do Without You,” so now that we have a new single on our hands, we’re ready to toss it on the record player for some new Caribou airplay.

“Our Love” showcases Dan Snaith getting down to business. Instead of the playful repetition of …

Taylor Swift shake it off

Taylor Swift Announces New Album ’1989′ And The Lead Single Is Pretty…Different

At long last, Taylor Swift has announced her long-awaited new album and shared the first single. She hosted a very anticipated live stream on Yahoo today where she announced the album, titled 1989 (the year she was born), comes out October 27. Surprisingly, lead single “Shake It Off” features some snappy electronic production, deep baritone saxophone, and Swift laying down some real-talk rapping reminiscent of Avril Lavigne.

The music video for “Shake It Off” shows Swift pretty much responding to all the naysayers from over the years. For those who think she’s a cookie cutter country pop star, watch her …

ODESZA In Return

Listen to ODESZA’s New Single “Say My Name” (feat. Zyra)

In less than a month, electronic duo ODESZA will drop their sophomore LP, In Return, on Counter Records. The two are finally swapping out vocal samples for real guest artists, and it’s definitely paying off. We were smitten with their first single, “Memories That You Call” (feat. Monsoonsiren), and now we’re head over heels for “Say My Name.” With a guest vocalist as equally sweet and dangerous-sounding as Zyra, it’s hard not to be.

If anything, this just proves they know how to make the type of blissful drops that sound good in headphones and booming center …

Hostage Calm Stream “A Thousand Miles Away From Here”

Are you ready to Die On Stage? If not, let us help you prepare…

Hostage Calm are back, and today they are continuing the promotional run towards the release of their latest studio album with the premiere of a brand new track titled “A Thousand Miles Away From Here.” The song, which premiered on Noisey shortly after 9AM this morning (August 18), is one of the most avant-garde songs in the band’s catalog. That’s not to say the track sticks out as being a change of pace entirely or something completely unexpected, but in comparison to other singles, “A …

Stars No One Is Lost

Stars Announce New Album ‘No One Is Lost,’ Stream Single

Canadian indie rock group Stars have confirmed they will be releasing a new album, titled No One Is Lost, on October 14 via ATO Records. The follow-up to 2012′s The North is comprised of 11 songs and was produced by both the band and Liam O’Neil (Metric, The Stills). Since it was recorded beneath a club, the constant throb of bass beats influenced them to create an autonomous and serendipitous record that pushes them forward.

Don’t think it’s all fun and games, though. According to the band, the album title is a joke because “We are all going to lose …

Stream A Low-Quality Leak Of Kanye West’s New Single, “All Day”

Leaks are a tricky subject in the world of music blogging. On one hand, we want to do our best to bring you the latest and greatest music available regardless of how we find it. On the other hand, we do not want to piss off our industry peers to the point they no longer want to work with us. It’s a fine line we tip toe on a day-to-day basis, and this morning we decided sharing just one early leak would not be the death of us. Let’s hope we’re correct.

Just after midnight, a low-quality leak of Kanye
